Bombardier (BBD.A) has delivered its fifth Global business jet to Swedish defense supplier Saab’s Linköping, Sweden, location.

Saab chose the Global aircraft, with its high-altitude performance and long endurance, to be used for the company’s GlobalEye Airborne Early Warning and Control solution.

Steve Patrick, Vice President of Specialized Aircraft at Bombardier, commented on the aircraft’s capabilities.

“Bombardier Global aircraft are ideally suited for conversion into specialized assets,” he said, “and we are recognized around the world for our collaborative, flexible approach, and unparalleled expertise.”

Saab is a leading global defence and security company and has been a trusted partner of the Canadian military for more than 30 years.

The company’s GlobalEye aircraft completed its maiden flight in early 2018 and three jets have been delivered from Saab to the customer so far.

“Saab partners with industry leaders, which is why we chose Bombardier’s Global 6000 aircraft as the platform for our advanced Airborne Early Warning and Control solution,” said senior VP and head of Saab business area Surveillance Carl-Johan Bergholm.

Bombardier Specialized Aircraft offers flexible solutions for customers around the world. To date, over 550 Bombardier Global, Challenger, and Learjet business aircraft are currently performing specialized missions worldwide.

“Bombardier’s signature smooth flight technology provides a comfortable environment for operators and highly stable platform for sensors,” said Mr. Patrick.
